I have and will continue to buy these strings for my bass.

By Edward

Comments about Rotosound RS88S Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Standard Gauge Short Scale Bass Strings:

The RS88S Trubass nylon strings are very easy on your fingers. That's important to me as a bass player of only 1 1/2 years. They produce a deeper bass sound than the round wound strings I previously used without the screeching sound of the round wound when I move my fingers across the strings to play different notes.

Great quality strings **do not fit my Epiphone Viola bass***

About Me Experienced

Comments about Rotosound RS88S Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Standard Gauge Short Scale Bass Strings:

I purchased these strings for my Epi Viola and upon trying to fit them I discovered they were about 1.5 to 2 inches too short. Disappointing because they seem to be very nice strings otherwise.

Basic Black is Back

By William

from Asheville, NC

Comments about Rotosound RS88S Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Standard Gauge Short Scale Bass Strings:

I purchased a 2014 Gibson SG Special Bass last February which came equipped with roundwound strings. As a bass player for over 40 years, I realized that what I really wanted was some good flat-wounds. But, I held off for a while to get used to the new bass. My wife bought me a set of these new Rotosound Black Nylon Flatwounds for Christmas and after a week of practice, I love the look, feel and sound of these black beauties. I couldn't be happier as I thump away for hours without getting sore fingers, too.

These Were made for the Hofner viola

By Scott Reaman

from Tamaqua Pa

Comments about Rotosound RS88S Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Standard Gauge Short Scale Bass Strings:

These strings are wonderful on my Hofner icon Bass I have seen reviews that the E string would not fit in my nut but Mine had no problems i just put them on so I am not sure about how they will stay in tune having also seen reviews that these strings will not stay in tune, but I will see over the long haul thanks. Rotosound Initial impression is 5 stars

Smooth and buzz free

By Max Lambert

from Hudson, MA

Comments about Rotosound RS88S Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Standard Gauge Short Scale Bass Strings:

I've been teaching my 13 year old granddaughter to play bass - we re-equipped her bass with these when she was having problems with the buzz and finder wear and tear caused by roundwounds. She loved them. I play their long scale cousins on my bass. They really are smooth, sound a lot like an acoustic bass, and are easy on the fingers - plus the black strings look hot on the basses.

They look great, they play great.

By mstrg

from Wayne NJ

Comments about Rotosound RS88S Trubass Black Nylon Flatwound Standard Gauge Short Scale Bass Strings:

I don't play alot so my fingers are sensitive when I do play. These strings are comfortable and give a great sound. I am not a fan of the buzzing sound that round wound strings make and these give a clean smooth beefy sound that I love to play. I recommend these to anyome who wants a good looking (black strings on a black bass look great) and good plying string.
